The Indian protest hip-hop producer Big Deal released the single Are You Indian on the 6th.
Are You Indian reflects of a specific long held division between the main body of India and the North East Region with a song title that is perfectly self explanatory. Whilst of specific focus to India these similar divisions are globally spread with countries dividing themselves in to cliques and factions with deep distrust between one another, for little purpose other than a narrative based on no rationale.
A few hours ago the Indian ambient-rock trio Ioish revealed the LP Reconstructing Dreams.
The six song, approximately twenty seven minutes, album is comprised of luxuriant layers of progressive-rock that build quiet architectural complexities of multi-faceted washes that keep the listener focused within the angularity and extemporised feel of the compositions.
Ioish, the Indian ambient-rock trio, are currently working on material for the LP Reconstructing Dreams.
Surfacing today is a demo version of When The Dogs Define Her, the first track to be revealed from the forthcoming album, discovers Iiosh, introduced in early 2016, with a more cinematic wash to the orchestration and given this is merely an unmixed demo signposts an LP of some considerable munificence on its way and as I have more news I will keep you informed.
The Indian slofi trio Nilein revealed the song Central Park on the 25th.
This is another one of those moments when me being late to an email, on this occasion from April of last year, has borne fruit with new material, therefore an apology for not getting to older material sooner.
Central Park slips slowly in to earshot as it peers tentatively out of the speakers, minding of a dormouse wandering in to a potential spot in which to hibernate and spotting some comfortable nesting and busying itself building a bed prior to quietly resolving into slumber merely a tad over three minutes later, yet hypnotically engrossing the audience with its tentative and careful footstep though the course of the fleeting moments of its activity.
Armed with a desire to create music and an impressive voice Ratnang Singh, who is heavily influenced by US southern folk, delivers songs which are doleful in countenance while possessing an intrinsic beauty in which the listener finds themselves spellbound.
The latest track to surface – Falling From The Skies echoes through the room in harmonic dreamy spires from which the audience can find solace.
